Development of a Combined Low-cost Water and Soil Testing Kit for Schools

Background and Objectives

In recent years, environment education is becoming an inseparable part of school curriculum. Water & Soil are two major factors on which life thrives. Next to air, water is the most life sustaining media for survival and soil is the media through which we get food for daily sustenance. Due to unchecked industrial development and other disturbing components, water and soil are getting polluted day by day resulting in increased level of contaminants. Schools provide the basic foundation for a children's progress in future life and the responsibility to provide them a healthy surrounding rests on us. There was no easy to do yet authentic kits to measure the soil & water quality, so a project was funded by NCSTC, DST, Govt. of India and implemented by ASTE Council in collaboration with Cotton College Chemical Society to design and produce a low cost water & soil testing kit for schools.

Activities

Designed and produced a low cost Water & Soil Testing Kit and as per the advice during YSA-04, distributed to all the districts of India through respective State Coordinating Agencies.
A Multimedia CD and a manual titled 'PARAKHI' produced.
